(National Sentinel) Presidential: On Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump took to Twitter to take a swipe at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and press for funding for his acclaimed border wall.
“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA,” Trump wrote. “We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!”
The president did not mention the other White House immigration reform principles which include an end to chain migration and the end of the visa lottery program.
The administration declared the Senate Flake/Graham/Durbin amnesty bill “dead on arrival” yesterday as well. However, officials said they were open to a bill that addressed their three top priorities on immigration.
“The President has laid out exactly what he wants to see, and he’s laid out the principles that need to be addressed for a piece of legislation that he’s actually willing to sign,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.
However, Schumer no longer appears interested in making a deal. His office said Tuesday he had withdrawn a previous offer to agree to some funding for Trump’s proposed border wall.
